About This Content

Lock on target - Bohemia Interactive has launched Take On Helicopters: Hinds - the first official DLC for Take On Helicopters. Bringing in a variety of helicopter gun-and-gameplay, Take On Helicopters: Hinds enlists players to become the pilot of the most iconic helicopter gunship ever: the Hind.

Take On Helicopters: Hinds presents three highly detailed variants of the Hind: the Mil Mi-24P, Mil Mi-24V and Mil Mi-24 SuperHind Mk.III - featuring interactive cockpits, retractable landing gear systems and various weapon loadouts. They are accompanied by brand new singleplayer challenges, which showcase the various roles a Hind can play on the battlefield. Five new Time Trials invite players to master the Hind's distinctive flight dynamics. Last but not least, a new multiplayer death match scenario lets players battle one another as pilots, gunners, or both.

Take On Helicopters: Hinds comes with ENG/GER/CZ/IT/FR/SP localization, features 3 difficulty modes (beginner/trainee/expert) and includes optimized controls for mouse-and-keyboards, gamepads and joysticks.

Unlike the rest of ToH, I cant quite reccommend this DLC. It has a severe lack of content. No story. Just 4 fairly bland missions with minimal voice acting. ARMA's horrid npc AI also rears its head here. The usual problems like your gunner not opening fire when the target is in the crosshair or enemy AI that feels like it is a cheating aimbot or at another moment, brain-dead. This was not so much an issue in the base game as there were no enemies, but here it matters. The scripting is also as bad as ever.
You may still be able to like this, but your more likely to get frustrated by it. If you really want helicopter combat, your probably better off with one of the DCS simulators or just ARMA 3 multiplayer.
This DLC should be free, or at worst purchased in a steam 75% off sale.
